Known in the Domesday Book as Cambrewelle, meaning “Well of the Britons”, Camberwell has a long and illustrious history dating back to the dim and distant past. It is the only area of London with a butterfly named after it (the Camberwell beauty) which was originally described here in the 1700’s.
Camberwell is now perhaps better-known as the former home of actor Sir Michael Caine, as well it’s impressive housing stock featuring numerous beautiful Georgian properties filled with original features. Sadly, older a properties are far more prone to damp proofing problems which can lead to structural damage as well as health issues.
In those individuals who are prone to allergic reactions, the microscopic spores released by mould can cause sore throats, headaches, coughs that won’t get better and red eyes.
In many damp homes you find you are suffering from such conditions without even having laid eyes on a fungus, simply because it is growing in an inaccessible part of your home such as the floor boards or roof joists. As Michael Caine would say; “not a lot of people know that”.
Sadly, while damp problems are prevalent in older Camberwell properties, even newer properties are far from immune. Indeed new properties with their better air-sealing to keep you warm and cosy in winter can actually increase the chances of condensation problems caused by bathing, cooking and general day-to-day activities.
Fortunately there is no need to suffer in silence; no matter what the source of your damp, Tapco HomeDry are on hand to diagnose the problem and carry out remedial work where necessary.
